  1. emaisl received, try to block invalid email and cant block why?

    When I block emails, it says you cant block this email its invalid, why did I receive an email from them, and also says can not block my own, I didnt select any of my own in the email listing to delete, so why is it asking me that? this has only just started and its annoying , will have to go to google or mail.com and close this account which I have had since 1995

    • hover over unknow e-mail senders address in preview mode

      Being able to hover over an e-mail before opening it would weed out unknowns, hackers and scammers. Best to be able to preview sender and whole address in preview mode. I've avoided a lot of trouble on another e-mail account by being able to do this. Also at the same time hovering over the line message to see if I want to bother with the body of message.

          • Give mobile users the option to FORWARD EMAILS

            There's no way to forward an email anymore. What good is an email service that you can't forward emails on the go from a mobile device?

            • Allow Send From Address in Outlook app From All Email Addresses

              Outlook.com syncs with Outlook app very well, with one major exception. When working with the Outlook app, you are not allowed to send from different addresses. You can do this from Outlook.com, but you can't from the Outlook 385 app. This is a major failing that could and should easily be resolved.

              • logout does not work only reloads inbox

                Every time I try to log out of outlook mail it reloads my inbox and signs me back in. This is very frustrating and I am unable to properly sign out of my email which does not make me feel like this is at all secure.
                I would appreciate any feedback you could give to fix this problem.

                      • New Family Calendar can't be used from Outlook 2016

                        The new Family Calendar seems to work fine from web and mobile/UWP apps, but can't be changed/added to from Outlook 2016 even though it is picked up automatically from the outlook.com account. To make this capability actually useful for anyone using Outlook 2016, this needs to be fixed!

                            • How do I delete contacts on Hotmail/Live/Outlook mobile site (on iPhone 6S+ iOS 11.0.3)?

                              I have an iPhone 6S+ (two years old) with iOS 11.0.3 (newest software) and I have never been able to figure out how to delete contacts from the contact tab. I want to specify that this is in the Safari app, on the mobile website; This also happens on any other operating system on the mobile site. There is no ability to swipe or hold for options, as in the mail tab. There are no options within individual contacts. I have four random contacts from a Skype account I had attached to who knows which device from almost a decade…

                              • Restore Ability in 2016 to have Multiple Months in the To Do bar, along with One months Appointments.

                                Since changing from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 2016 I discover that the ability to have multiple Months in the To Do bar, along with One Months appointments being shown has gone.
                                This is a major problem for me, and is almost enough for me to change to a different e-mail client.
                                PLEASE ADVISE WHEN THIS WILL BE FIXED!!
                                Thanks.

                                    • Just go back to having all options down the side. It is so slow to click the = button!!!

                                      When ever I go to click to get something out of junk mail I have to click the = button three or four times before it presses it. It is sooo annoying. Please just have options down the side again. It was easier!

There are many social events that I schedule (ie: dinners, ******** hours) where the end time is not fixed or given. The way it is now I just estimate the end time. But an "undermined" option would better reflect the fact the event does not have a set ending time. Maybe it could be set to say the…
